There is so much good in the worst of us,
And so much bad in the best of us,
That it hardly behooves any of us
To talk about the rest of us.

I would like to write this message under "Discussions" but I might offend some. So I thought I would discuss this with my fellow type 1's instead. I realize not every person who is a t1 was dx'd as a small child but a lot of us were and even those who were not a small child may have a better understanding of this than anyone else.
I was dx'd …that’s probably old compared to a lot of the kids who are being dx'd these days. Anyway…I was so jealous of the t2's growing up. I would have given anything to take a pill and exercise to handle my diabetes but that wasn’t an option. I would hear t2's complaining and think "shut up you big babies! you have it so much easier. What are you complaining about?!?!" I think I have let this idea and attitude fester (that may just be a Texan slang so please forgive me if it is)in my mind since I was a kid and now it is just turning into an attitude. When I hear a T2 complain I think "do you not realize you are complaining about having to take pills while little kids are being told that for the rest of their lives they will have to take shots?!" I got to where I considered T2's to be fake diabetics, real diabetics take insulin. I think I have at least got over that feeling or idea. But I do think too many t2's are complainers.
Ok I would like to know what the rest of you think or how you feel.

They should walk a day in a t1's shoes…They would not complain ever again… Just my 2 cents
Have a wonderful day…

I agree. They need to walk a day in our shoes. They think they complain now, they wouldn't know how to handle a day in our shoes.

WOW..I have been away for awhile,and this is the first post I get when I logged back in…THIS IS VERY TROUBLING!!
Have you forgotten the entire purpose of this web site? It appears so..Let me help you all out..We are all here to help one another get through life more comfortable,supported by others w/ the same or similiar disease.It is here where we can reach out for advice and know how from others WHO CARE.Not JUDGE.OUR families can also come here to help to gain a better understanding and some encouragement from other familiy and friends of ours.
OK. Now how can you say such things about anyone..First of all ..ANY..ANY DISEASE THAT A PERSON HAS IS WORTHY OF THEM "COMPLAINING" OR BEING CONCERNED ABOUT. IT IS THE "WORST" THING EVER.AND IN THIS CASE YES "WORSE" ANYONE ELSE'S ..BECAUSE IT IS THEIR OWN!!!! I CANT UNDERSTAND WHERE YOURE THINKING COMES FROM..WHEN I HEAR A T2 PERSON TALKING OR EVEN COMPLAINING ABOUT THEIR SITUATION, IAM READY TO GIVE THEM SOME POSITIVE REASONS FOR TAKING STEPS TO STAY A T2. LET THEM KNOW THERES NO REAL U TURN WHEN YOU GET TO T1. ETC…
I DO NOT THINK TO MYSELF, "WHAT A BIG BABY" "YOU DONT HAVE THE RIGHT TO COMPLAIN, BUT I DO" THAT IS WHAT I THINK YOU MEANT.IDK-?
lASTLY..HOW ANY OF YOU CAN REALLY WISH SOMEONE WALK IN YOUR SHOES,HAVE T1., IS BEYOND ME TOO..YOU ALL SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELFES FOR THIS ???
YOU ALL COULD BE DOING A POSITIVE THING WITH YOUR T1 KNOW-HOW..THIS IS NOT HELPING ANYONE, VENTING IS FINE..But Its not why we are here !!! To help ..Rather then do this about t-2's. Do you realize you can offer so much more like your knowledge and advice that only you T-1's can Remind them of the importance of certain things and yeah even mention you are jealous of them..I do Im sure they dont realize that people out there may envy their situation,,,Please just think about it…ID LIKE TO APOLOGIZE FOR YOU ALL …BUT IM HAVING A HARD TIME ADMITTING I WAS ON YOUR FRIENDS LIST …
